    Hey guys I am looking for some tips and tricks to planting strawberries for the first time in east Tn. New to berries and wanted to plant some allstars and seascapes this month in a 4×8 bed. any help would be thankful.

  • Mr. Strawberry

    Brett Minish,
    Yes, it is with the right variety and the right conditions. However, plants burn out more quickly that way and produce a total yield lower than plants that have a period of dormancy. Good luck!

    Is it possible to produce strawberries year round in a greenhouse in Georgia?

  • Mr. Strawberry

    John,
    Conventional pesticides like Sevin Dust will work for most pests. If you’d like to stay organic, you can try a liberal application of diatomaceous earth. Good luck!

    Im growing strawberries and have a few bug issues. One is I have a long neck seed bug problem, how can I control and get rid of these bugs? I have been researching and can’t pin point a good answer.

    linda fyffe,
    Unfortunately, no, you cannot grow a strawberry that way like you can grow a pineapple. The calyx and fleshy material still attached will simply rot. Sorry!

  • linda fyffe

    Hi. I’m thinking of planting strawberry in my 2.5 meters x 5.5 meters greenhouse. And I need your help. What are the size of the pots or any suggestions as regards to minimizing the space as I also have few vegetables. Second, what are the best seeds to grow, I’ve heard about Victorian and etc. and where can I buy them? Will it grow during winter? Any info please let me know. Thanks

    Oguzhan D,
    I haven’t encountered any sources that cite Vitamin D as a good fertilizer for strawberries. But, I haven’t read everything out there! Why not try it out and report back how it goes? Good luck!

  • Oguzhan D

    Hi!

    A friend had a look at my strawberries and he told me that I should give the plants vitamin D fertiliser.. Any thoughts or knowledge about this?

    He said it would make the berries bigger, as they are quite small this season.

  • Mr. Strawberry

    Terri Slover,
    Yes, there is. I’d recommend reviewing the information on the Growing Strawberries reference page. Pay special attention to the links on renovation and transplanting. Good luck!

  • Terri Slover

    When growing strawberries, does there come a time when they need to be “thinned”?
    How/when should I do this?
